The Mormons are coming!
South Park duo's musical hits West End
The Book Of Mormon – the musical written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone – is heading to the West End next year.
On Broadway, where the show has been running for for 14 months, it won nine Tony awards and was described as ‘the best musical of this century’ by the New York Times.
The plot concerns two Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda, where they find the locals are too worried about war, famine and AIDS to care about religion.
Trey and Stone collaborated on the show with Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, who has denied it was blasphemous when it opened in New York.
The Book Of Mormon will be staged at the Prince of Wales theatre in London. Tickets go on sale on September 13, with previews beginning on February 25.
Here is a number from the show:
